Housing

Blount HallBlount HallOn-campus housing at UAB in one of several residence halls is available to early applicants in our full-time program. Local apartment finding agencies are also available free of charge in the area to help students locate apartments, many of which are within walking distance of the campus. The IEP provides information to students on how to apply for on-campus housing or how to contact local apartment-finding services for assistance.

For more information on housing on UAB’s campus, please see UAB's Housing and Residential Life page. To explore the residence hall options available, choose the "Non-Traditional" link on the left of the page, and then select "Residence Halls" from the tabs.  Or link directly here.

Applying for Housing
If you plan to live on-campus at UAB, early application for a room is encouraged, since space is sometimes limited and you may be placed on a waiting list. Note that you will almost always have a roommate. Dorm1

To apply online, click on the Apply (My Housing) link. Prepare to pay a $25.00 application fee with the online application by credit card. You'll have to set up your Blazer ID first, which you will do at Blazer ID Central. 

**Special note: The rates on the website may not be applicable to you, since they are for undergraduate students enrolling for a 16-week semester. Your rates may be different if you are here for an 8-week or 4-week session.

What to bring to UAB
What you bring is really up to you, but many residents bring an alarm clock, bedding, cooking utensils, a personal computer, a lamp, plates and silverware, a radio, a shower curtain, a telephone, towels, and of course the personal items that help you feel at home. You will need extra-long twin sheets for the twin beds. Of course, much of this can’t fit into a suitcase, so you will be able to buy any of these items at a store in Birmingham, if you like.
